Leonard Curtis Legal has added to its fast-growing team with the appointment of a new senior associate solicitor.
Chris Mitchell joins from a leading national law firm where he has spent the last nine years, working in their business support & restructuring department.
He has extensive experience of dispute resolution at all levels including, recently, the Supreme Court, and will lead the team on contentious matters.
Leonard Curtis Legal is headed by Andrew Gregory, who commented: “I have been delighted with the progress Leonard Curtis Legal has made in such a short space of time – clients really value the distinctive approach we bring to helping them with their business issues.
“To meet ever-growing demand we need to recruit talented lawyers, and it is exciting that a lawyer of Chris’ calibre has recognised the opportunity and joined us.”
Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group (LCBSG) was one of the first UK multi-disciplinary practices in the SME market to take advantage of the changing regulation around the provision of legal services.
Leonard Curtis Legal works closely with colleagues at LCBSG, providing a range of services at a fixed cost entry point and bringing fresh thinking to commercial issues. Main work streams to date have come from legal requirements around company set ups, contractual and employment issues and litigation.
LCBSG director Daniel Booth said: “The wider group saw more and more situations that needed a solution which crossed over professional disciplines and services in the SME space, and the addition of legal services through Leonard Curtis Legal in the latter part of 2016 was something we just had to do.
“Since then the response from clients, intermediaries and the wider group has been extremely positive. Andrew and the team have gained real momentum and Chris’s arrival adds fantastic contentious experience. Investment in experienced individuals will continue to meet the growing demand.”
Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group has expanded its UK operation with the opening of two new offices and five new appointments this month. The increase in locations and personnel will meet demands on the Group to deliver positive strategic business advice – on a local and regional level – to even more of UK’s 5.7 million SME owners and their advisers.
